My "other": I'm trading bitcoins on localbitcoins.com. Also, I'm using bitcoins for payments whenever I can.

I'm buying as much as possible using Bitcoin is IMO one important option that is missing.

The only reason most companies accept Credit Cards is because they would loose a lot of customers if they won't accept them.

I try to boycott non BTC business where ever possible (it's mostly not possible, though but it's getting better).

All previous versions of currency will no longer be supported as of this update

Buying, selling, trading, bartering all kinds of goods with BTC! Using it and talking about it whenever appropriate or able.

I've been dabbling in bitcoins for a while now and I've decided to start a bitcoin business to buy and sell bitcoins.  I know there seems to be a lot of them popping up recently, but hopefully the convenience and ease will allow mine to survive.  I also believe that the more competition for a product the better =)

Doing local trades, currently via localbitcoins.com. Small-time, not trying to make a profit. I try to keep my fees low, enough to cover exposure to volatility and exchange fees etc.

Selling out to advertisers shows you respect neither yourself nor the rest of us.

For localbitcoins, I have no fees above gox and I'll help people set up their wallet and show them good sites like BitMit and whatnot. Also, I'm a bitcoin consumer as well. There are deals in bitcoin that come up that you can't get elsewhere.

Trying to get Austrians/ancaps into Bitcoin, since it's such a natural fit for them. I'm finding that if you simply keep at it and keep connecting it with their goals, they eventually kind of quietly give in. Then a few more nudges and the prevailing opinion on a forum becomes pro-Bitcoin. Right now is the turning point; the big Austrians are starting to come around - maybe even Bob Murphy. We'll see soon... That would be a pretty big influx of new users.

Unfortunately, "I'm investing in it (buying or mining them)" and "I'm developing all kind of bitcoin related business/software/website/apps/etc" will do nothing to make bitcoin grow. Only increasing awareness or convincing others to use bitcoin will have any real effect.

Buy stuff on Amazon with BTC or convert Amazon points to BTC here: Purse.io

Bitcoin related business will make bitcoin grow because if you provide a novel service or good at a desirable price, then it will convince people to invest the time to get connected to bitcoin. I didn't join bitcoin because someone increased awareness or convinced me, it was because the senate blocked US poker sites and someone offered a poker site in bitcoin.

Investing in it (buying and hoarding) can also drive the price up, which will attract people.

I'm pointing out fatal design flaws which make bitcoin unsustainable and explaining how they can be fixed.

I'm trying to inject realism into the wishful thinking customarily applied by forum participants.

I'm trying to undermine association between bitcoin and radical politics. This association is unnecessary, unjustified, and harmful to widespread adoption.

I'm encouraging people to think more about what's good for bitcoin in the long-run and less about what's good for bitcoin in the immediate future.
